I believe this should be fixed already with latest packages from rawhide, can you confirm?

Comment 6 Steve 2009-08-04 04:05:32 EDT
I cannot confirm that, because i do not work with rawhide anymore (to broken). Maybe i can confirm that in the alpha release of fedora 12.
Comment 7 Ben Skeggs 2009-08-04 04:16:26 EDT
Okay no worries, I'll re-set the NEEDINFO flag so I can keep track of things :)
Comment 8 Adam Williamson 2009-08-04 19:26:24 EDT
You can grab a pre-Alpha build here: http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/12-Alpha-TC/

maybe just get one of the live CD builds and try that, shouldn't take too long.

Booting fedora 11 live cd and installing xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.15-0.20090728git4d20547.fc12.i686.rpm does not work because of dependency resolution of kernel-drm....
Comment 10 Adam Williamson 2009-08-05 12:32:57 EDT
yeah, no, since it uses KMS by default now nouveau depends on rather a lot of stuff in the kernel. but see above, you can try a live F12 pre-alpha, that should be recent enough to test and isn't dangerous, as you don't have to install it.

Comment 11 Steve 2009-08-05 14:25:06 EDT
Are i'm stupid, or is there no pre-alpha livecd?
Comment 12 Adam Williamson 2009-08-05 15:18:01 EDT
er. no, you're not, I am! I'm terribly sorry, I just sort of assumed there was.

Well, hang tight for the Alpha then, sorry for the false alarm.

Any updates?
Comment 14 Steve 2009-09-14 02:35:16 EDT
I have no more nvidia card and cannot test this bug anymore. Sorry about not reporting. Please close the bug. Someone can reopen it if the bug further exists.
